DPO Solution for Dentists

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the definition of a ‘public body’ under the Data Protection Act 2018 requires dental practices who carry out NHS work to appoint a Data Protection Officer (DPO).

This legal obligation presents an enormous challenge for small health practices because at first glance it can seem impossible to meet the requirements. The BDA’s attempts to lobby government to overturn this were unsuccessful.

VaultConnect and Data Compliance Doctors have come together to build a scheme designed to fulfil the needs of small health practices who offer NHS dental treatment.

We have also teamed up with RightPath4 to help us better understand the needs of the independent dental practice – and in return for their help and assistance we are delighted to be able to offer discounted support services to RightPath4 clients.

DPO Support Service

Our DPO Support Service provides reassurance to staff appointed to the role of DPO within independent Dental Practices.

The service ensures they are supported in their role and that the practice remains compliant.

The VaultConnect approach rapidly establishes:

  • A robust Record of Processing Activities (GDPR Article 30) – which becomes a living and breathing document
  • A comprehensive view of Risks, existing Controls, Gaps and requirement for action
  • Ownership and engagement – making compliance part of everyday culture rather than a box-ticking exercise

Each practice is provided with their own ComplianceVault which allows them to manage their GDPR Documentation and follow our simple 9-steps to compliance process.

Getting started and becoming fully compliant couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Buy your plan at GoCardless (use the links in the table on this page selecting monthly or annual payment) and register your practice
  2. We’ll set up your ComplianceVault and arrange a time and date for a 1-2-1 call to get you started
  3. In the 1-2-1 call we’ll make sure you know where everything is and how the ComplianceVault, video training and instruction manuals work
  4. Follow the training and fill out your ComplianceVault
  5. Keep up to date with regular webinars

RightPath4 customers receive a 40% discount.  

Pay annually and get 10 months for the price of 12.

Managed DPO Service

The VaultConnect DPO Solution has been developed to allow small independent dental practices achieve compliance and work together to achieve common best practice – all under the guidance of a master Data Protection Officer.

The same methodology, tools and support can be adapted to provide groups of practices with an effective Data Protection Officer solution, greater flexibility / agility and savings against a traditional out-sourced named DPO solution.

The VaultConnect solution has been designed with the objective of helping small health practices achieve compliance and own their processes.    The proven methodology (9 Steps to Compliance) is based on the principles of risk management and elements of ISO 27001.

Data Protection Officer for Dental Practices – GDPR Compliance without the pain and cost

Find out more about the Scheme

The scheme delivers expert DPO support at a fraction of the cost of training or appointing an outsourced DPO through a consultancy.

The scheme also ensures that the requirement for “Proven ‘expert knowledge’ of data protection law and practices” is met whilst ensuring no “conflict of interests” (i.e. with a role that determines the purposes and the means of the processing of personal data).

By providing a scheme focused purely on the needs of General Dental Practitioners providing NHS treatment we can also keep members abreast of relevant developments in the data privacy landscape.

Advantages of The Dental Practice GDPR Compliance Scheme

  • You fulfil your obligation to have a named, compliant DPO at a fraction of the cost of an out-sourced solution

  • You will be in control of your practice’s compliance. The scheme is designed specifically for small dental practices and members will be trained and supported in groups – allowing for specific questions and challenges to be addressed.

  • You will be trained and able to demonstrate compliance – FAST.  Training takes place online, in short sessions and at a time to suit your working day

  • Your training is action focused.  Simple tasks between conveniently timed sessions will build your knowledge and ensure your practice is compliant and operating best practice

  • Continuous support will keep you abreast of changes in the data privacy landscape AND allow in-depth analysis of specific challenges faced by dental practices

  • You’ll gain access to tools and services that will close common gaps in compliance – e.g. compliant data backup and secure sharing of sensitive personal data

  • You’ll be fully supported by the best. Training and support is provided by data privacy professionals with a combined knowledge and experience of data privacy with credit bureaus, central government and data industry lobby groups during the consultations leading up to GDPR

Free to Attend Webinars

We regularly examine an element of the GDPR and its impact for Dental Practices in a little more detail.   

Each webinar typically lasts 20-30 minutes (we allow a little longer for questions and answers at the end – sometimes this can be the most important part).   

We make the recordings available to be viewed On Demand afterwards
